Evidence of Stone Age tomb found near megalithic monument known as 'Sweden's Stonehenge'


Archaeologists have discovered evidence of a Stone Age tomb near the site of a megalithic monument known as Sweden's Stonehenge.

Remains of a burial site thought to be 5,500 years old were found near to Ale's Stones, an arrangement of 59 boulders on a cliff on the Swedish Baltic coast.

According to local folklore the stones are the final resting place of a legendary leader known as King Ale, but other theories say it could be an astronomical calendar with the same underlying geometry as Stonehenge.

Researchers from the Swedish National Heritage board discovered the traces of the ancient tomb after digging a trial trench at the centre of the stone circle, which itself is thought to be between 1,000 and 2,500 years old.
